The Shared Learning Trust is delighted to announce a highly positive set of GCSE results achieved by students at its Stockwood Park Academy.
Leaders at The Stockwood Park Academy on were also very pleased with their results. The school achieved an increase of 11 percent in the number of students achieving a standard pass in English and 5 percent increase in those achieving both English and Maths. Other significant results include Science, particularly Chemistry, Business Studies, Media and Information Technology.
Mr Found added: In total we had 50 exam entries where students achieved the top A* Grade (now called a ‘9 Grade). This is a significant achievement as this new grade is harder to achieve than the old A*. Several students achieved multiple 9’s and in particular I would like to highlight the performance of Anjola Akadiri with seven 9 Grades and Yvette Blay who achieved four 9 Grades. At Stockwood Park we also celebrate student progress from their starting points, even if there final outcomes are more modest. In this regard I would like to celebrate the achievement of Mehdi Quazi and Natalia Wroblel who far surpassed their target grades in their final exam performance. Well done to all students!”
Principal Richard Found said; “We are delighted with the performance of our year 11 students this year. Results in English and Maths has improved and this demonstrates the continued progress the academy is making in improving the outcomes for our young people. The students and staff have worked extremely hard to attain this success and we look forward to welcoming many students back into our sixth form in September. During our recent Ofsted inspection in May 2018, inspectors noted that school has a clear vision for improvement and this is reflected in today’s results. I would like to take this opportunity to wish all our GCSE students the best of luck in their future endeavors.”
CEO of the Trust, Cathy Barr said: “I am very proud of the results that have been achieved by our Year 11 students. Exams are getting harder year on year, but our students and staff have risen to this challenge through dedication and hard work, enabling our family of schools to go from strength to strength. I know a lot of students will be delighted with today’s results and are looking forward to joining our thriving sixth form in September. I hope students from other schools will perhaps also look at what we can offer as they consider their A level options.”
